This Week’s Theme: Nautilus
While this image makes this sleek, wooden art piece appear stationery, it actually rotates around the center circle. Wood kinetic sculpture artist, David C. Roy, of Wood That Works named his 35″ diameter piece Nautilus, which can run for up to 5 hours.
Watching Nautilus in action is watching stunning beauty in motion. Enjoy
Mechanics and motion have always fascinated me. During college I studied physics, engineering and chemistry to further my understanding of how things worked. I graduated with a degree in physics from Boston University in 1974. This intuitive understanding of motion and mechanics combined with the artistic influences of my wife, Marji, led me to the creation of kinetic sculptures. My woodworking skills are self-taught. In 1975 we started “Wood That Works” and I became a full time sculptor.
